is a collaboration between the Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta (FAMA) and the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta (ISB). The ISN provides opportunities to hear and interact with a panel of local practicing representatives from six faith traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism Hinduism, and Sikhism. The panels are educational and facilitate dialogue and understanding between different religions. In addition to sharing information ISN panels showcase ways that different faith traditions can work together.
Each panel presentation begins with an introduction of the faith traditions followed by a question and answer session, open to questions that audience members have always wanted to ask. It may be the first time for many of the audience members to experience seeing people from different faith backgrounds working together and presenting together. All our ISN panelists and speakers are trained and certified to adhere to the First Amendment guidelines (teach and not preach) when presenting about their religion
ISN programs promote religious pluralism by both emphasizing our shared values and practices and modeling respectful civil discourse when discussing our differences.
Our Interfaith Panels augment middle and high school curriculum, and college and university classes on world religions. They also benefit Faith-based and civic organizations by providing valuable information.
Duration of the panels: 60 minutes or 90 minutes
